Breathe

Sadie White’s summer job is at the beach, but she won’t be working as a lifeguard. Since her mom is pregnant and refuses to work, Sadie will be taking over as a domestic servant for a wealthy family on a nearby island. When the family arrives at their summer getaway, Sadie is surprised to learn that the owner of the house is Jax Stone, one of the hottest teen rockers in the world. If Sadie were normal - if she hadn’t spent her life raising her mother and taking care of the house - maybe she’d be excited about working for a rock star. But she’s not.

Publisher's Summary

In the shore town of Sea Breeze, Sadie discovers that fame is nothing in the face of passion. A steamy listen from best-selling author Abbi Glines.

Sadie White’s summer job is at the beach, but she won’t be working as a lifeguard. Since her mom is pregnant and refuses to work, Sadie will be taking over as a domestic servant for a wealthy family on a nearby island.

When the family arrives at their summer getaway, Sadie is surprised to learn that the owner of the house is Jax Stone, one of the hottest teen rockers in the world. If Sadie were normal - if she hadn’t spent her life raising her mother and taking care of the house - maybe she’d be excited about working for a rock star. But she’s not.

Even though Sadie isn’t impressed by Jax’s fame, he is drawn to her. Everything about Sadie fascinates Jax, but he fights his attraction: Relationships never work in his world, and as badly as he wants Sadie, he believes she deserves more. Yet as the summer stretches on, Jax’s passion leaves him breathless - and Sadie feels like the only source of oxygen.

Can their love overcome the disparity in their lifestyles? One breath at a time, they’re going to find out.....

    "I didn't think it was YA!"

    I debated about getting this book for eons...I'm not really into young adult novels, sure twilight was decent but I tell myself it was the vampire thing that got me through the intense YA story....I didn't get the same vibe from this book, I would classify it as Romance of the fluff variety.

    Yes, the story revolves around a 17 year old girl....but this "girl" has been the head of her household since she was 11 due to piss poor parenting. I know a "kid" like that and trust me, she is no kid! But I see why people would confuse a younger person storyline with it being a YA novel.

    There were a few steamy scenes (in full detail) and a few f-bombs dropped, but ultimately the story moved slower in the romance department because we are dealing with inexperienced kids and to have them shack up on page three would have just been horrible. So yes, this is romance not erotica, and it was predictable and full of fluff but that was what I wanted. I really wish there was a sequel to this couples story, this is part of a series and I hope the writer comes back to these two...I want to know more of their story.

    So, if you are looking for some wham bam action on page 3 this is not the book for you, but if you want some fluffy romance star crossed lovers thing then add it to your cart :-)

    This book not as good as" fallen too far", but it was a sweet little love story. If your looking for a light little romance this book is for you.

    "Good story, bad male voice."
    Would you listen to Breathe again? Why?

    No, couldn't stand the voice for Jax while he was narrating


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Breathe?

    When Jax and Sadie went back to his house after the movie!

    "Super easy read"
    Would you ever listen to anything by Abbi Glines again?

    yes


    Have you listened to any of Kirby Heyborne and Shayna Thibodeaux ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This performance was one of the best I have heard from Kirby as compared to other books by this writer were he got on my nerves......Shayna done wonderful as always!


    Any additional comments?

    Lucky for me I read this series out of order (backwards) if I would not have I more then likely would of stopped after this book. It just didn't grip me and hold me like the other books in this series. The love between the two made me want to roll my eyes ( exp. some of the mushy stuff they would say to each other) and they feel in love WAY too fast! There was a good story in there but felt booged down under the confessions of their feelings. Still an okay book better ones to come in the series so please don't stop with this one. And if you truly want to skip over this one that can be done b/c you will see these two in other books and learn their story with out all the mushy gushiness of it all.

    Any additional comments?

    I know I'm among the few that didn't love this book, but it just never did anything for me. I struggled with ever turning it on (hence taking 5 months to finish it). This book is the prime example of why I hesitate to read YA. It ends up being a walking cliche: the clueless virgin, the lonely rockstar, insta-love, crappy parents, angst and jealousy because there's no communication, the forgotten birth control, and I could go on. I really struggled to find any redeeming qualities in this book, so it's safe to say I won't be continuing with the author or series.

    "All sorts of feels"

    I don't typically like rock star books, but I have it a try based on reviews and I'm so glad I did. The performance by Shayna and Kirby was spot on and the story was so sweet and emotional. Can't wait to continue on with this series.

    Story
    "Story gets a B+ but the presentation..."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A better narrator for one thing. It threw me off the story. Now if I just focus on the story it's rather...basic. The main character, Sadie, is interesting and strong but the others are rather dimensional. The dialog is also a bit shallow but I didn't expect too much. Go into this with low expectations and it will be a good read.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something more fantasy/sci-fi I think...maybe.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Okay so I wanted to write a review just because of the performances. Kirby Heyborne is a bit apathetic and dry, when he tries to put on a southern accent...well I've heard better but also not the WORST ever.
    Shayna Thibodeaux is really was the biggest obstacle for me. She does this William Shatner-esque pausing narration that is very annoying. I've been through a lot of audio books and have found what I like in a narrator and what I don't like. Shayna sounds like she's reading from the page and performing, almost forcing it, rather than BEING the character and living the words.
    Now don't get me wrong, someone will love the way Thibodeaux and Heyborne narrate but it just really isn't my thing.

    "More YA than NA, but fun"

    The book was fun and well-written, though not an awful lot happens in the story. Just be aware that this is really more YA (Young Adult) with sex, rather than NA (New Adult). The protagonist is 17 years old, still in school and the themes are the typical coming-of-age and identity-development ones of teen books. There were some believability issues, but the story flowed well and was enough fun to listen to that I'll consider other books by Abbie Glines

    I preferred the male narrator. The female narrator had a very staccato way of speaking which made the heroine sound flip and casual, even when the words/story indicated that she wasn't.
